New tools in Blogger

As Elizabeth noted in and earlier post, Bloggger has addded a few new tools, including a WYSIWYG editor (what they call "Compose Mode").

I haven't had much of a chance to play with it. It seems to add only a few minor formatting tools, all of which we learnt how to do manually in Session Two.

The weblink tool isn't as good as the one in HTML mode. It only converts the URL you supply into a link. It doesn't give the option to add separate link text as does the tool in HTML mode.

They have also introduced the option to send a post to a friend via email. This option needs to be turned on in the settings. I've turned this on for this blog.

Now if they could only offer a proper link list manager (like a lot of other blog hosts do), instead of expecting us to update the template manually every time we want to add a link to the list!
